Arsenal major shareholder Alisher Usmanov has total faith in manager Arsene Wenger.

The Sunday Telegraph says Usmanov believes Wenger lacks board level expertise to help him – and has been starved of resources, although there are now substantial funds to spend.

Usmanov does not want Wenger to be replaced as manager – he has 18 months left on his current contract – and remains an admirer of the Frenchman and what he has achieved as well as his approach to football.
